Women's Equality Day Celebration
Friday, August 24, 2012 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (PDT)
San Jose, CA
From Awareness to Action:
A Women's Agenda for Santa Clara County
The Santa Clara County Commission on the Status of Women is once again celebrating Women’s Equality Day, and we are counting on your support to make this event a success. By far, this is one of the most energetic and exciting annual events of women’s leadership in Silicon Valley and commemorates the successes and achievements of women in our valley.
This year’s event is particularly important as we will be launching our Public Policy Agenda in partnership with the Office of Women’s Policy. Last fall, the Commission joined the Office of Women’s Policy in releasing The State of Women & Girls 2012 Report, a much anticipated, comprehensive analysis of how women and girls are doing in our community. Its findings revealed great strides and challenges for women in Santa Clara County, and will serve as a basis for our county-wide advocacy work.
Join us in our efforts in changing women’s lives!
